Stephane De BritoBy Dr Stephane De Brito, School of Psychology

One common misconception about stress is that all stress is bad for you. In this talk, Dr De Brito will define what stress is and when it is beneficial. You will find out how the physical and the social environment shapes behaviour, influences how our genes are expressed as well as brain structure and functioning.
